A new day - a new witness

The prosecution has finished with its second witness in the State House corruption trial here in Montgomery.  Now, the defense has taken over the questioning of State Representative Barry Mask of Wetumpka.  Mask, who wore a wire for FBI investigators, has been questioned about his personal finances and employers.  More on that in live reports from the Federal Courthouse at 5 and 6.
After a teen drowned in the Coosa River in Wetumpka over the weekend, authorities and city officials are trying to come up with way to keep people from swimming in that particularly dangerous part of the river.  At 6, we'll tell you what they've come up with.
A pair of accidents, side by side, on I-65 in Lowndes County kills one person.  We'll have the details on what State Troopers think happened to cause the two wrecks so close to one another.
How low is the River Region's water supply?  With a lingering and intensifying drought, some cities are keeping a close eye on their water tanks. 
The good news on the drought front?  The hot and dry weather pattern is changing.  Later in the week, we should have cooler temperatures and increasing rain chances.  Rich Thomas updates the forecast starting at 5.
All this and more - tonight at 5,6, 9 (on WSFA 12.2 Digital) and 10!
See you in the studio soon.
Take care,
Bob H.
